Use this command to specify a priority value for a default peer. The user can specify several peers with, or without, prefix-lists of which there can be common or identical occurrences of peers. In such cases, the MSDP daemon chooses only one of the specified peers with which to work. For this purpose, MSDP chooses the peer with the highest priority (the lowest number) to be used as the default. You must specify one default peer with a specific priority or MSDP returns an error message.

Use the set form of this command to specify a priority value for the default peer.

Use the delete form of this command to delete the priority value of the default peer.

Use the show form of this command to display the priority value of the default peer.
